About Joao

We are a young couple and this apartment is very special to me and my wife. It was our first home and we loved living there. We invite you to experience and enjoy the comfort as well the bright light decoration and feel like you are at home.

It’s a pleasure to provide you a great time in Lagos, so you can count on us to help with anything, or information you need, once I was born and lived here in Western Algarve.

Joao purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Joao chose Lagos

The apartment is set in a tranquil area and has a friendly complex. This location is excellent for us. You won’t feel the need to rent a car, because the Meia-Praia Beach, Marina, Old Town, stores, restaurants, bars, supermarkets, pharmacy, bus and train station, are all a couple minutes walk from the apartment.

Fantastic first visit to Portugal staying in a fabulous apartment.

  • 5 of 5

29/07/16-12/08/16. Fantastic apartment, pool was never too busy even though it was peak season. Was met by Joao and his wife who showed us around the apartment and even left us a welcome pack of drinks, fruit and Portuguese custard tarts. Joao was great to deal with, very efficient and helpful. The apartment is a short walk to the marina and then a little further to the old town. The beach was lovely, again within walking distance. Loved the dolphin trip, kayaking around the grotto and the kids also loved scuba diving. Was our first visit to Portugal and won't be the last.

Lovely apartment is a brilliant spot

  • 5 of 5

First I must say how fantastic Joao was from start to finish. From booking to arrival in Lagos he was so easy to communicate with. He met us at the apartment on arrival and throughout the stay was available if needed.

The apartment itself was spacious and airy with a beautiful terrace. The beds were comfy and the showers great. The coffee machine was an added bonus so we made the most of that too. The pool area which serviced all the apartments was never busy so there was always enough beds for us. A point to note is that there are very few English speaking channels on the TV (Sky News mainly) however we often travel with a usb stick with programmes we have downloaded for the kids (and adults if needed), which we could then use on the TV. There is a DVD player also if you want to take DVDs.

The apartment is about a 5 minute walk to the marina and then another 5 minutes to the centre. I would highly recommend that you book any restaurants you fancy or you will be disappointed as they can get busy.

Would highly recommend.

Lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have just returned after having a lovely time in Lagos. The apartment is superbly located, a short walk to the Marina approx 5 minutes and 10 minutes to Meia Praia beach. Also the supermarket is a short walk away for all the supplies you could need. The apartment is very comfortable, the air conditioning was a must as the temperatures were around 32-34 deg everyday. It is well furnished and the owner Joao contacted us regularly throughout our stay to ensure everything was ok for us. Communication with Joao has been excellent both prior to our holiday and since. He also supplied us with a baby cot free of charge which was ideal for our 9 month old grandson. Lagos itself is a delight with great places to eat and interesting places to explore.

We will hopefully be staying again next year as we all had a super holiday.

Great Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our flight departure was delayed by 10 hours so instead of arriving at midday, as planned, we arrived at the apartment nearer to midnight. Joao had booked a private airport transfer for us so we simply sent an email to notify of our delay and he sorted everything so the taxi driver was waiting for us when we finally arrived.

The apartment was spacious enough for our family of 4 plus grandmother. We particularly liked the quiet location and uncrowded, fresh, clean pool. My daughter enjoyed juicing oranges and my husband appreciated the coffee machine. The location is perfect, short walk to the beach, short walk to the supermarket and short walk into Lagos, which is exactly the reason we chose this area. There was no need to hire a car so the holiday was very relaxing.

We were spoilt for choice with the variety of restaurants Lagos has to offer, although we did find it necessary to book in the high season. We liked Mullens, Na Na Bar, Quay Lagos and Portofinos. We enjoyed the land train, the pro-putting and caught the bus outside the supermarket to Slide and Splash waterpark.

I would recommend this property to friends and family and hope to return again ourselves.

Excellent Apt

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my 3 friends stayed in this apartment for a week in June 2015. Joao was brilliant to deal with prior to our arrival. We were on a very late flight and to our delight when we got to the apartment Joao had a welcome food package with food, water and even a few beers! Thanks for that joao!

The apartment itself was spotlessly clean with all mod cons. The balcony is huge and you get great sun there until about 12pm. There is another smaller balcony off one of the bedrooms which gets the sun in the evening. There is a lovely communal pool with a lovely quiet atmosphere.

The apartment itself Is situated in a perfect location and the walk into the town is gorgeous where u pass the marina. I have stayed on the other side of lagos closer to Praia Don Ana beach and in my opinion it is much nicer on the marina side. Also the meia Praia beach is much saver for kids.

I would highly recommend this apartment for its beautiful interior, large size and perfect location.

Perfect apartment, perfect location !

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently spent a week in this apartment in August 2014.

The apartment exceeded our expectations. It was spacious (more than large enough to accommodate our party of 5 adults, who all like our own space!), stylishly decorated and furnished to a very high standard (everything seemed to be brand new), and spotlessly clean.

The apartment also has access to a communal pool area which was very quiet, peaceful and clean (including the pool toilets), with plenty of sunbeds.

The apartment is located in the Encosta da Marina complex, which is in the perfect location for exploring Lagos day or night. A short 5 minute walk takes you to the Marina, where there are cafés for breakfast and lunch, restaurants for dinner (we recommend Portafino's), and a number of bars for evening entertainment if you don't feel like venturing into the centre of Lagos. A number of boat trips to the caves / dolphin watching are also available from the Marina.

Another 5-10 minute walk from the Marina and you reach the centre of Lagos itself, a very pretty town with a relaxed atmosphere and lots to see and do; cobbled streets to explore, unique shops to visit, and lots of choice for places to eat and drink to suit all ages and tastes. We recommend Mullins, No Patio and Nah Nah Bah.

Maia Praia beach is also within a 15-20 minute walk from the apartment, and there is a large, good value supermarket around a 10 minute walk away which sells everything you could need, including fresh fruit and veg, bread, meat, and fish.

Jaoa, the owner of the apartment, was very helpful during the whole process; from booking our stay, allowing us to check-in early due to an early flight arrival, contacting us during our stay to check everything was ok, and even arranging someone to drop off some extra cushions for the sun loungers on the balcony.

A perfect apartment, in a perfect location, what more could you ask?
